    Drama

    Remarkable graduation film from KASK in Ghent with an entirely unique style. Fedor is a young locksmith in Murmansk, a frozen city in the darkness of the Russian arctic. He wanders from client to client through the concrete alleyways driven by a fantasy that isolates him from the city and its inhabitants. His dreams erode his sense of reality, opening the door to a phantasmagorical universe: a second sun rises over the horizon.

    Dorian Jespers

    Belgium

    Dorian Jespers (1993) is a Belgian filmmaker. He studied Cinematography at INSAS and Directing at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Gent, an education that focuses strongly on the development of a filmmaker's personal audio-visual language. This is reflected in his experimental fantasy MA film, SUN DOG. A project for which Jespers graduated with the highest distinction, received the Horlait-Dapsens prize and was offered the Wildcard by the Flemish Audiovisual Funds. The film has its world premiere in IFFR's Ammodo Tiger Short Competition.
